A little tiring but it was worth it. A jam-packed itinerary covered many points of interest and tourist attractions in three days. Our tour guide, Joey, was organized, well-informed, and friendly. Driver Mr. Wang was courteous and considerate. Over all, it was a great experience, I will definitely sign up other tours offered by your company in the future.

The tour was enjoyable and excellent. Tour guide James and driver Lee were very nice and gentle. Seeing Hearts Castle, Yosemite Park, Golden Gate Bridge and taking cruise in the bay were very exciting.
